I remember Easter as a time for a brand new everything--from a straw hat, white gloves, new underwear, to patient leather slick bottomed shoes--and then off to church for a small Easter parade, a church service bedecked with lilies and daffodils, lots of singing, and pictures--lots of pictures--stopping at Roger Williams Park for pictures--at home in front of the forsythia bushes for pictures...
This Easter I've tried to get away with using what we have, and buying a dress from a thrift shop. My granddaughter loved the idea of decorating her blue floppy hat for Easter--the flowers and feathers are either pinned and basted on for easy removal. She picked out a deep red velvet dress that needed a few adjustments, but will do.
